Skånska Järnvägar (Skånska Railways)

 

Some short history from Skånska Järnvägars website

The railway line between Brösarp and S:t Olof (a part of the "Ystad-Brösarp" railway company) was opened in 1901. It was nationalized in 1941 and the passenger traffic ceased at the end of 1971.

The railway is standard gauge (1435 mm) with a length of 13.4 km. There is a total of four stations along the route (Brösarp, Ravlundabro, Vitaby and S:t Olof).

The Skånska Järnvägar preservation society began running it's steam trains in the summer of 1971, as the first standard gauge veteran railway in Sweden. Brösarp is the main terminus, with sheds and works facilities.
